COOKING FUNCTIONS
Your Crock-Pot multi-cooker has five cooking functions:
Sauté/browning Use this function to seal or brown meat and poultry before cooking. This is
especially useful when you intend cooking meat using the slow cooker function. Your multi-cooker
has five sauté/browning temperatures.
Slow cooking Slow cooking works by building up heat and maintaining an even temperature. For
the best results do not remove the glass lid before half the cooking time has elapsed. The glass lid
allows you to monitor cooking progress without interrupting the cooking time.
Roasting Use your multi-cooker to roast meat and poultry, potatoes and other root vegetables
Baking The baking function of your multi-cooker can be used to bake everything from fish to cakes.
Steaming Effortlessly create perfect fluffy rice or steam vegetables and fish for delicious, healthy
meals.

additional cooking time required (in 5 minute increments) then press the start/stop button. Your
multi-cooker will continue cooking for the added time.
The Sauté/Brown function and the Steam functions can be used without setting the timer.
However, if desired, you can use the timer feature of your multi-cooker by setting a time using the
timer increase/decrease buttons.
After use, unplug your multi-cooker from the supply socket. Your multi-cooker does not switch
off automatically.

Tips
If a browner skin is required when you are roasting poultry, place the poultry with the breast side
down for the first 30 minutes of cooking. Then, turn it the right way up for the rest of the cooking time.
For a superb roast, brown the meat first using the sauté function before wrapping it in kitchen foil.
Carefully wipe the cooking bowl clean with kitchen paper before placing the meat onto the rack. This
will stop any roasting juices from escaping out of the steam vent in the lid.

three times and the green start/stop switch light will go out and the display will flash.
8. You can switch off the baking function at any time by pressing the start/stop button.
Tips
Certain ingredients can be cooked directly in the cooking bowl. However, cakes and other recipes
with a high fat/sugar content should be cooked in suitable bakeware placed on the 2-way rack. When
baking directly in the cooking bowl, line it with baking paper to prevent ingredients sticking.
STEAMING FUNCTION
Steaming food is healthy. It doesn’t require any fat and less of the nutrients and vitamins in the food
are lost. When steaming, the food is placed on the 2-way rack so it is kept clear of the water then
water is added to the cooking bowl. The amount of water you can add to the bowl is dependant on
the rack position.
1. Place the cooking bowl into the heating base, then place the rack into the cooking bowl in the
high or low position as required. With the rack in the low position, add 180ml of cold water. This
will give about 5 minutes of steaming—perfect for leafy vegetables and asparagus. With the rack
in the high position, add 1.2 litres of cold water. This will provide steam for about 45 minutes.
2. Press the standby button ( ) Your multi-cooker will beep and the red standby button light will
come on. The display will flash.
3. Press the steam function button (
). The display will stop flashing and show HI. Program the
cooking time using the increase/decrease timer buttons ( ) as required. You don’t need to set
the timer
7
4. Press the start/stop button ( ). The button will light up green and the display will show
“PreHeating”.
5. Your multi-cooker will start to heat up. Once it has heated up sufficiently to produce steam, your
multi-cooker will beep.
6. The timer will start to count down as soon as the unit has pre heated so add the food as soon as
possible. The cooking bowl and other parts of your multi-cooker will be HOT!
7. When the timer has counted down to zero and cooking has finished your multi-cooker will beep
three times and the green start/stop switch light will go out and the display will flash.
8. You can switch off the steaming function at any time by pressing the start/stop button.

Boil Dry Safety Feature
If the water runs out during steaming, your multi-cooker will turn itself off as a safety feature. If this
happens, the display will show OFF. If you have finished steaming and your food is cooked through
you don’t need to do anything else except switch off your multi-cooker. However, if you need to carry
on steaming or want to steam other items, do the following:
1. Switch off your multi-cooker by pressing the standby button ( ).
2. Refill the bowl with cold water as required (180ml minimum).
3. Let your multi-cooker stand for 2 minutes to allow the boil dry safety feature to reset itself.

6. Press the start/stop button ( ). The button will light up green and the display will show
“PreHeating”. Once the unit has pre heated, you can carry on cooking as before.
7. If the display doesn’t show “PreHeating”, switch off your multi-cooker and allow it to cool down for
longer before continuing from step 4 again.
Cooking Rice with your Multi-cooker
Your multi-cooker will cook brown and white rice beautifully. You don’t need to set the timer because
your multi-cooker will automatically switch off when the rice is cooked.
Cooking time will vary depending on the amount of water and rice added to the bowl but as an
example, 2 cups of washed basmati rice take about 10 minutes, (including preheating).
• Always rinse white/basmati uncooked rice in cold water prior to cooking. This removes the
starchy residue and produces fluffy rice. Place the rice into a suitable sieve and rinse well until
the water runs clear. Allow to drain for 5 minutes.
• When steaming rice, place the water into the cooking bowl first, then add the washed rice. Ensure
the rice is evenly spread around the base of the bowl before steaming.
• The preheating cycle of your multicooker is included in the cooking time, so place your rice in the
unit before preheating.
• When steaming smaller amounts of rice, there may be some slight spitting of water from the
steam vent in the lid. This is entirely normal, however we advise that you position your multicooker away from any electrical sockets etc.
• You may notice that a sticky residue of cooked rice is left on the bowl after steaming your rice.
Most of this should be removable using a non-metallic spoon or spatula. The remainder can be
removed by soaking the bowl in hot soapy water for a few minutes.
• Cooking rice using your multi-cooker will only work when the correct ratio of rice and water is
used. Therefore, it is imperative that you measure out the rice and water using the rice measure
provided. Do not try to guess.
• Always use cold water.
• Always place the lid on your multi-cooker when steaming rice
• The rice does not need to be stirred during the steaming process.
• Once cooked your multi-cooker will automatically switch off. However, leaving the rice in the bowl
with the lid on for 1 or 2 minutes will allow the rice to soften further.

CLEANING
Never immerse any part of the heating base or power cord and plug in water or any other
liquid.
• ALWAYS unplug your multi-cooker from the electrical outlet and allow it to cool before cleaning.
• Wash the lid, 2-way rack, cooking bowl and rice measure in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry
thoroughly. Do not use abrasive cleaning compounds or scouring pads. A cloth, sponge, or
rubber spatula will usually remove residue. To remove water spots from the surface of the
cooking bowl, soak it in a solution of vinegar or lemon juice and warm water for 30 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly then dry.
• The lid and 2-way rack can also be washed in the dishwasher. Although the cooking bowl is
dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing only.
• The outside of the heating base can be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with warm, soapy
water. Wipe dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
• No other servicing should be performed.
